We had a huge school of Bonita (Little Tunny) hanging around the boat with sharks and the occasional Blackfin tuna. AS soon as I jumped in the water there were bonitas and sharks everywhere. I dive down a few times trying to pick out one of the biggest ones and timed my shot hitting him mid body. The fish streaked off and immediately two big sharks started chasing it. I pulled as hard and fast as possible with the sharks chasing the fish he was spiraling and going nuts. I pulled him to me just in time as Cameron kept the sharks away and I swam to the boat bear hugging him.
